A SEA-SIDE SKETCH.
The sun sinks down a round red disc :
And seen against it, tapering thin
(Relieved of the cures of risk),
The fishing-smack comes riding in.
Slow sinks the orb beyond the bay,
Or, so, at least, it seems to sink—
A thirsty charger, shall I say?
Slow stooping in the sea to drink.
And beating shoreward, sea-grey gulls
Come sailing up the Sound in flocks,
Then clean their wings, an . „
Aloft amid the rifted rocks.
The *oft winds play round poop and prow,
Too weak to climb the rocky cliff.
Within whose deepening shadow now
Lie bulky barge and tiny skiff.
O
Tappahankock, Va. Sept. 18G9.
Dear Transcript :—I write you from
this place, the county seat of Essex couu
ty, situated upon the noble Rappaltan
nook river. It is about the size of Odessa,
though covering rather more space than
that town. There are some fine man
sions still left standing in the town, though
many of the,better class of houses were
battered down or burnt by the gunboats
during the late unhappy civil war. Their
blackened and battered chimneys are still
standing, melancholy memorials of the
unnatural strife between the sections,
North and South.
1 siek their boles
And over all the scene anon
A denser darkness draws around ;
The village lights shew one by one,
And night comes hushing every sound.
LKTTER FROM VIRGINIA.
Correspondence of the MiiUltitown Transcript.
The inhabitants seem
cheerful and happy, and have addressed
themselves to their several avocations,
siuco the war, with a laudable determina
tion to repair their ruined fortunes. And
they are meeting with a success truly en
couraging. Politics appear to be ignored;
you can scarcely get one of the inhabi
tants to exchange a word with you ou the
subject. They will talk of the crops, of
the price and improvement of land, of all
other subjects ; but you can hardly get a
word out of them on public affairs,
haps it arises from their distrust of stran
gers, towards whom they practice more
reserve than towards each other. It may
also arise from the fact that they are still
under military government, and within
the satrapy of the notorious Gen. Canby,
who doubtless has his spies and informers
abroad, with open, itching
Since I have been here upon the sacred
soil of the Old Dominion, I

have hail the
opportunity uf seeing Sambo as n part of
the " State." I have seen him iu office,
" clothed with a little brief authority,"
nnd I tell you that no turkey-cock iu a
Delaware barn-yard can out swell him.
He seems to " feel his oats." The Sheriff
of the county, n negro named George E.
Stephens, is one of Gen. Canby's appoin
tees. A mulatto scalawag named A. D.
Johnson, is his deputy. A negro Justice
of the Peace, named William Rreadlow,
with several white Justices, were holding
Court, the negro the chief Justice. The
sight looked very odd, to your correspon
dent, hut the white associates seemed not
to mind the presence of their sable broth
Indeed, the white men seemed to pay
very little regard to the blacks, whether
in or out of office, and have but little to
say to or do with them,
separate ways, without much regard to
the other. A little incident which oc
few days since,
ntay serve to show the workings of the
new regime, and the importance of Sambo
in Gen. Cauby's kingdom : An old Eng
lishman, who was a constable, approached
a man on horseback, who was sweanug
about something at a pretty round rate,
and taking hold of the horse's bridle,
. commanded the man to stop swearing,
whereupon the rider dismounted and
knocked the English constable down. The
latter jumped up, rushed in to the negro
magistrate, got a writ and took the offen
der against the " peace, dignity and hon
or" of the old commonwealth, before the
sable magistrate, who fined him $1.00
and 50 cents cost. Shades of Marshall
aud Story ! What is jurisprudence
ingtoin this " Land we Love?"
So few persons can take the iron-elad
oath, that it is hard to fill the offices,
cept with negroes, scallawags or carpet
baggers. One gentleman, a native of
Delaware, residing here, fills no less than
four distinct offices, being a Justice of the
Peace, Levy Court Commissioner, Recor
der, and Solicitor in Chancery ! He holds
all these offices, but does not fill them
perform their duties, several lawyers dis
uhargiug their duties, while he holds the
commissions. These arc some of the
beauties of good government, in Virginia,
which might havo been quietly in her
place in the Union, fulfilling her duties as
n State, sinee the surrender of Gen. Lee,
at Appomattox, but for the happy thought
of " reconstruction," conceived by Lin
coln, adopted by Johnson, and changed
and modified by Congress to keep alive
confusion and dissension, make fat places
for political favorites, and keep open the
Bores of the war to gratify the malignity
of radicalism.
Good river farms can be bought along
the banks of the Rappahannock, for $20
Per acre; interior upland farms can be
bought for $5 per acre. Of course, the
latter are not much improved, but as sus
ceptible of improvement as any other land.
Emigration will not set in very strongly,
while society is vexed here with the
of an unsettled government. But I must
close, having made my letter much longer
than I intended.
